Che k the big white block connector under the right-hand fairing panel, look for corrosion or in simple terms very green looking connections.
Agreed. Forgot to mention that one.most likely the connector on top of the starter relay
Problem solved with a new battery, lucked out this time... Thank you all respondersSL, (St. Louis?)
Your new battery may cure things in the short term but you might have some electrical issues (very common on the TL). I have a 97s too. Do me a favor. Post a picture of your starter relay. Which should be attached to your tank mount about where your nuts are, its right there under the seat. Then post up a pic of the big gang connector behind your fairing. The yellow one. Biggest of the lot. Open it up and shoot the pins. If you are from STL you may be experiencing mild southern climate and not have a drop of corrosion like mine. :devious
in which case you might be good to go with a new battery. Then the fun begins. charge mod, coil mod, blah blah blah...
